VN, Cambodia courts step up cooperation

The supreme courts of Vietnam and Cambodia have agreed to increase the exchange of visits and the sharing of experiences in terms of trial, management and administrative reforms.

Deputy Chief of the Vietnamese Supreme People’s Court Tran Cam Tu and his Cambodian counterpart, Khim Ponn, reached consensus on the issues during their talks in Hanoi on Sept. 8.

Tu applauded the Cambodian delegation’s visit, saying it would contribute to promoting the mutual understanding, friendship and cooperation between Vietnam and Cambodia and the two courts in particular.

The Vietnamese Supreme People’s Court will host a conference of chief judges and judges of border localities of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia early next year to discuss measures to boost coordination and cooperation, and share trial and judicial reform experiences.

Khim Ponn said he hoped that Vietnam would provide more assistance to the Cambodian courts, especially in personnel training, trial experiences and judicial reforms.

Cambodia’s court sector is willing to beef up cooperative ties with its Vietnamese counterpart, thus strengthening and developing comprehensive cooperation between the two nations.

During its six-day trip, the Cambodian delegation is scheduled to pay courtesy visits to State President Nguyen Minh Triet, the head of the Supreme People’s Procuracy and the Minister of Justice.

It will also visit and hold working sessions with authorities of several cities and provinces, and attend the 65th anniversary of the Supreme People’s Court.
